“Thanks Brew crew!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

Visited Brew again during last trip back to NZ in January this year and enjoyed our dinner so much we went back the next day for breakfast. Friendly and welcoming staff, delicious food, good wine, beer and cider selection and the revamped decore is looking great. Keep doing what you do Brew crew.

“Brew at the Brian Boru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

The old Brian Boru no longer operates as a hotel - but it is home to Brew, a fantastic cafe/wine bar. We had an amazing meal there, fantastic value for money, and the place is full of character. Thoroughly recommended.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

We went there yesterday for lunch. The staff were very busy and never missed a beat, the food was delicious with good sized portions. Real value for money in a nice setting. Will definitely be back again.

“Eclectic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

Nice cafe/bar with good coffee and food. The old historic pub has character and atmosphere. Big burgers and home made chips are all good. Friendly service
